The rare car, which Mr Bradshaw has lovingly restored was taken from outside their home in Finsbury Place, Halstead, between January 12 and 15 while the newlyweds were honeymooning in Finland.
The couple had been saving for the trip since their wedding day in October 2011.
The car is pictured above, it is a Ford Cortina Carousel with green upholstered seats and interior.

Anyone with information should contact Braintree police station on 101.
